Tuesday Teasers: "The Caregiver" and "Black and White"


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading,. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! Just do the following
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on  that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away!   You don’t  want  to  ruin the  book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser. 
Gerard's:
My right hand was in my coat pocket, still wrapped around the gun. I could smell that it had just been fired. But I wouldn't pull it out again.
From page 14 of Black and White by Paul Volponi


Karen's:
She would concentrate only on Mattie's needs. That would enable her to keep her mind off her own pain and start to move on.
From page 25 of The Caregiver by Shelley Shepard Gray.

  5. Those are both interesting - they make you wonder about the stories, and that's the sign of a good teaser.
